For a year now, Florence Christian has been seeking God’s guidance and wisdom in determining our present and future ministries. Over the last year, we have affirmed our “Why”—our purpose or mission as a church: Celebrating God’s Welcome Table of Abundant Love, Grace and Acceptance. We also were able, through a series of gatherings and self-studies, articulated and affirmed our “How”—our Core Values to Welcome Radically, Serve Boldly, and Form Faith Every Day.
And now we are ready, with those clearly defined statements of mission and core values in place to inform and give us a strong foundation, to begin the exciting work of determining “What” we will do as we begin road mapping the future of our ministry together!
Our Vibrant Faith coach, Jim Ladoux, will assist us in this vital process of road mapping August 18-20. The schedule will be as follows:
Leadership Dinner and Meeting—Friday, 8/18 at 6:00 p.m. in the Well. Pastors, Members of the Board and Elders will meet with Jim to review the process and offer input. Reservations required for the dinner. Please call the church office at 859-647-5000, ext. 550.
